Max Verstappen saw an early finish to the race after a collision with arch-rival Lewis Hamilton.

The hype around the Verstappen-Hamilton rivalry saw an anti-climatic chain of events with both racers putting each other out of the final race at the Italian Grand Prix after a collision during the twenty-seventh lap. The two racing stalwarts also had a collision in the opening lap but without any dire consequence. However, the collision during the twenty-seventh lap ended the race for them when Max attempted to overtake Hamilton but hit him in the back-side causing Verstappen’s car to be sitting on top of Hamilton’s car after the collision.
